Rian Johnson: Purpose of Kylo's shirtless scene in TLJ was the feeling of "uncomfortable intimacy"



The director and writer of The Last Jedi answered questions about the (in)famous Kylo Ren shirtless scene. (Bonus: His reasons behind Rey's parentage.)

About the shirtless scene...

"At the premiere I heard somebody in the balcony say, “Yesssss!” You can see Adam was training hardcore throughout the whole process. It’s fun but it also has a specific purpose, which is the increasing feeling of uncomfortable intimacy. That was sticking with the theme of trying to give Rey the hardest thing you could possibly give her, which would be unavoidable intimate conversation with this person that she wants to just hate. This was just one more way of upping that ante."

[parentage spoiler]About Rey being a "nobody"...

"It felt like the way to go because it’s the hardest thing that she could possibly hear. It would be the easy thing for her to be defined by, “yes, this is how you fit into this story — it’s because your parent is so and so!” In that moment, for Kylo to be able to use that [information] as a knife and twist it to try and get what he wants, felt like the most dramatically potent option."

Not a Joke: Nick Cannon to Write/Direct Womens Basketball Film Starring Himself & Chris Brown



Nick Cannon has written a film about womens street ball which will star himself and Chris Brown. The film also stars Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, and Rebecca De Mornay. Production has already started.

The film, titled "She Ball” follows the struggles of Avery Watts (Cannon) who enlists the baddest women’s streetball league in the city to help him save the Inglewood Community Center, which he manages, all while trying to raise his seven-year-old daughter. The film will feature actual female athletes from the WNBA and other organizations.

It's unclear as to why a woman couldn't write, direct and/or star in a project about womens basketball, or why a film about womens basketball would center around a man and his struggles, or why the fuck Chris Brown is involved at all.

Jason Priestley Didn’t Know Who Harvey Weinstein Was When He Punched Him




Brandon Walsh was minding his own business sitting on a couch with his friend, when a big ass heffer wanted to sit in his place.

“I didn’t know who he was. I thought he was a bully. Because he’s a big guy, right? I thought he was a big bully that was working for somebody else and using his position to bully him and my friend. So I was like, you know what, I don’t even want to be around this person. And then he grabbed me. He got physical with me. And so that’s when I hit him.”

The altercation happened at a nightclub in 1995, Brandon Walsh adds: “I think that type of bullying behavior is representative of the kind of person that — well, whatever — that type of bullying behavior I think is what he is being accused of by all these other people. It’s bullying, it’s power plays.”

Have Liam And Noel Gallagher Reconciled!?

A few hours ago, Liam posted a tweet in which he wished "team NG" a Happy Christmas. Fans were obviously confused, thinking he perhaps misspelled "LG" as "NG" while thanking the team behind his solo career. He also said, "looking forward to seeing you tomorrow":



-When a twitter user replied asking if Liam was "going to have a meltdown" when Noel doesn't reach out, Liam claimed that Noel has already reached out to him and that they're "all good again":







Is this a Christmas miracle?

Stephen Baldwin supports the GOP Tax 'Bill'




Stephen Baldwin, the Baldwin brother everyone forgets about, appears on Great American Pilgrimage, a Krelmin backed program on Russian television where Baldwin travels the USA talking to Americans about the state of the country.

-Accuses Seth Rogen of bashing free speech for canelling interviews on SIRIUS XM radio after Steven Bannon was given a show on the network
-The interviewer states Baldwin's PR rep said to not mention Billy & Alec
-Says a bunch of other dumb things like:

Anything he has done that you don’t like?
--You need to write that I just started cackling — not chuckling, but cackling. You see the pause here, my friend, because I’m one of the very few supporters who really likes Von Clownstick a lot. It’s long overdue to see someone with this kind of brash, these kind of balls, really, to take on all this corruption. I don’t want to steer the conversation into dossiers and that BS, but it’s refreshing that he’s so far outside the politician-box.

Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms - Teaser Trailer



All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world. Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale. In theaters on Nov. 2, 2018.

Christian Bale offers his opinion on representation in Hollywood



- Christian Bale was out promoting his film Hostiles when the topic focused on better representation in Hollywood.
- Bale stated that "our culture will be so much richer the day that we stop saying, ‘Hey, it’s all white dudes who are running things. Whether that be Hollywood, whether that be Washington, you know. We’re going to get, in Hollywood, so much better films and so much more interesting stories being told and America will become the America that the rest of the world sees it as, that makes it unique."
